Steering Wheel Compatability

The Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO is designed to be used with aftermarket steering wheels.

It cannot be used with the factory Porsche 996 Steering Wheel.

At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix II Quick Release ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm).

Of course this makes it compatible with all Works Bell steering wheels, including the Works Bell Original Steering Wheel, the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, and the Works Bell Yoshioka Steering Wheel.

If you require an aftermarket steering wheel, we can supply a wide range of aftermarket steering wheels from Works Bell, Momo, Nardi and Personal.

Installation Info

As the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO with quick release bundle is a racing product designed for use in custom racing applications, it is designed to be wired into your car's electrical system by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

Installation should only be carried out by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

The Paddle Shifter NEO kit ships with an application specific plug and play wiring harness, but as this is a racing product designed for custom installations, your installer will need to wire the application specific wiring harness and paddle shifter to the quick release.

Why does the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO look like the Matchless Crowd Racing MCR Paddle Shifter for the Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R ?

Simple - because the paddleshifter mechanism for the Matchless Crowd Racing (MCR) Skyline Paddleshifter was co-developed by and is manufactured by Works Bell.

We asked Works Bell about this and they replied ...


untitled image

We developed the Paddle Shifter Neo for Nissan R35 GT-R with MCR (Matchless Crowd Racing).

You can tell this to the customers ... because MCR wrote our company name Works Bell as the maker for their Paddle Shifter in the instruction book ...

untitled image

MCR wanted to develop Paddle Shifter for GT-R with us because we had developed Paddle Shifters for many kinds of cars before.

Most people don't realise that the the paddle shifter mechanism used in the MCR Paddle Shifter for the R35 is actually manufactured by Works Bell !

If you look at the photo above of the Works Bell Paddle Shifter Kit for the Honda Fit, the ancestory of the MCR Paddle Shifter Kit for the R35 GT-R is obvious.
